(a) The University of California may, and the California State University shall, submit to the Legislature on or before November 30 of each year a comprehensive five-year capital outlay plan that includes, but is not limited to, all of the following information:

(1) State and nonstate projects proposed for each campus in each year of the plan, including a discussion of the programmatic bases for each project.

(2) An explanation of how each project contributes to accommodating needs associated with current or projected enrollments of graduate and undergraduate students, and other needs, and the rough estimates of the costs of meeting those needs.

(3) The estimated costs of each project, showing the schedule for when these funds will be needed, including a schedule of annual funding needs beyond the five years for those projects for which completion exceeds the timeframe of the plan and the relative priority on a campus and statewide basis.

(4) An explanation of how the plan addresses the Legislature's intent that the universities annually consider, as part of their annual capital outlay planning process, the inclusion of facilities that may be used by more than one segment of public higher education (intersegmental).

(5) Description and costs of activities that take place within the plan's timeframe related to the planning or establishment of new campuses.

(b) The California Community Colleges Chancellor's office shall prepare a five-year capital outlay plan identifying the statewide needs and priorities of the California Community Colleges. This plan shall be submitted to the Legislature on or before November 30 of each year. It is the intent of the Legislature not to consider any community college capital outlay project that is not included in the statewide five-year plan submitted to the Legislature. The five-year capital outlay plan shall include, but not be limited to, all of the following information:

(1) Enrollment projections for each community college district.

(2) Projects proposed for each campus in each year of the plan.

(3) The estimated costs of each project, showing the schedule for when these funds will be needed and the relative priority on a statewide basis.

(4) An explanation of the Chancellor's office priorities and methodology for selecting projects for state capital outlay funding.

(5) An explanation of the Chancellor's office methodology for calculating unmet capital outlay needs for the community college system.

(6) An explanation of how the plan addresses the Legislature's intent that the community colleges annually consider, as part of their annual capital outlay planning process, the inclusion of facilities that may be used by more than one segment of public higher education (intersegmental).

(c) The plans for the University of California, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges shall be updated annually, taking into consideration evolving circumstances in the planning process of the institutions. The Legislature recognizes that the annual plan is a flexible, working document subject to the evolutionary change inherent in the planning process. The plan shall be designed to reflect project data changes on a year-to-year basis, and the inclusion of a project in the plan does not guarantee its viability. It is further the intent of the Legislature that the project planning guides or capital outlay budget change proposals submitted for each state-funded project proposed for inclusion in the first year of the plan specify both of the following:

(1) How each project meets needs for different types of space, including, but not limited to, classrooms, teaching laboratories, research laboratories, and faculty offices.

(2) The direct and indirect project costs associated with the different types of space.
